our key, core constituency, movie stars. >> i pledge to be a servant to our president. >> oh, yes, celebrities are eager to support their candidate. >> it's as if -- >> people have nowhere to turn. no one to look to for help. until -- he arrived. >> it is mind-boggling to me the things that come out of people's mouths. ♪ don't frack my mother ♪ don't frack me don't frack me ♪ >> socialist egalitarian system. >> more laws will stop gun
7:01 pm
violence. in. >> newtown. tucson. aurora. >> aren't they hypocrites? i wish some one would confront them. to night we'll try. >> mr. redford isn't it deplorable you are glorifying the weather underground, a group of terrorists. >> vote for president obama. >> what makes these people experts? >> i'm not a doctor, but i play one on tv. >> that is our show tonight! hollywood has undergone mission creep. actors don't want to just entertain us, they want to fix the world. and if an actor can use his fame to help the world, why not? the world needs fixing. box office is nice. the world office is more important. so, actors do so-called public service commercials.
7:02 pm
after yasser arafat died, there was a commercial in palestine. >> i'm richard gere, speaking for the entire world. >> he speaks for the entire world? seems pretty arrogant. he is an actor. a popular one, yes, but what gives an actor the right to speak for the entire world? maybe because they're often portrayed as godlike. >> for centuries the people have nowhere to turn, no one to look to for help until he arrived. as long as there were people crying for help, there was one man, who would never rest. hercules. >> he is here in our studio. actually, actor kevin sorbo, played hercules and roles, the unusual actor that pushes back against those in hollywood who say we actors know how to fix
7:03 pm
the world. you have a problem with gear saying, "i speak for the entire world." i don't think he speaks for 7 billion people. he speaks for his own cause. that happens when people talk. you know you look at actors that come out, went crazy over, bush, with war in iraq and the wmds suppose lead, supposed to be there, not there, the uproar was huge. commercials and everything. you don't see any of them speaking out against benghazi. benghazi, a huge scandal in my book. >> they're dishonest? >> hypocritical. i think it rules in that town. we all can be guilty of being hypocrites here and there. it is amazing to me the number of people that want to push their agenda because they're so-called superstars. >> in hollywood they're always talking about tolerance? >> uh-huh. they don't have tolerance for any one that doesn't agree with them. that's freedom of speech. they will push freedom of speech, and scream for it until you diet. if you disagree, they don't want
7:04 pm
to give you the freedom of speech. be open. i am a true independent. voted for reagan. voted for clinton. i vote for who i think is the best person period. saying i'm independent in hollywood is enough to make me lose work within the city. >> really? >> no question about it. >> how do you know? >> it has come back to me, trust me. i have been on sets where i get tired of people's pen yuopinion. i point out where i think my viewpoint is going to be different than there is. enough to get people, boom, shut off. they get angry. emotional. >> some icky person. >> deal with emotion. no facts with it. when i came out and said i voted for reagan, in canada, with other actors, they said you are against education. i went, what? what do you mean? i have an after school program, world fit for kids. work with 12,000 kids. >> you and your wife started for inner city kids? >> work with 12,000 kids. the school district has a 54%
7:05 pm
dropout rate, 98% graduation rate. >> you are against education because you vote a certain way. >> there is an indoctrination, they have to be this way, that way. i keep asking, socialism, where has the it worked in? hollywood they don't worry about obamacare, they can do all the messaging and promote it. it doesn't affect them. >> the biggest cause in hollywood is saving the earth? you know, climate change all that. here is a commercial done by ape very fine actor. harrison ford. >> when rain forests get slashed and burned. it releases tons of carbon into the air we breathe. it changes our climate. it hurts. every built of rain forest that gets ripped out over there -- really hurts us over here. >> what? waxing your chest hair and the rain forest? all right. it's a gimmick.
7:06 pm
everybody wants to preserve the rain forest. i wouldn't mind so much if these actors weren't such hypocrites. harrison ford, owns, 7 airplanes. not one, seven. he admits he once flew his jet to get a cheeseburger. >> uh-huh. >> it makes me wish someone would confront actors about things like that. this spring some one did. >> mr. ford, any other plans to get your chest waxed again, to bring awareness to climate change? are you still flying to get a cheeseburger? i guess you are driving a honda odyssey, absolves you of owning seven aircraft. is it seven, mr. ford? how do you recommend people keep up with your carbon footprint. the person asking the questions was author of "hollywood hypocrites." jason, harrison ford may be a hypocrite. but you are obnoxious. you are rude. >> oh, john, i learn from the best.
7:07 pm
i followed your career at "20/20," confronting people who. >> i was confronting, crooks, thieves. this is a poor actor, expressing his opinion? >> he has a lot of sway, especially with young people. whether you look it or not. young people take their cues from celebrities. being hip and cool means being, in favor of these conservationist policies that harrison ford strangely got his chest waxed over. i don't, you know what, i don't care that he owns seven airplanes. i would love to own seven airplanes. please, do not lecture me, the rest of us that we're on the precipice of global warming armageddon while you have a sasquatch sized carbon footpr t footprint. >> what you do nobody comes close to doing. the press treats actors differently. i mean, the paparazzi annoy them. but reporters don't question them much. >> they want the exclusivity,
7:08 pm
the interviews are generally patty cake sessions. they won't actually grill them on substantive policy, positions that the actors themselves have taken. it's not like out of the blue. i would like, someone to ask harrison ford a serious question about his own personal scar bonn footprint. you and i and kevin. we would have to, we would have to walk around spring, aerosol cans in the air, all day long just to keep up with his giant xar bo carbon footprint. >> with seven jets we have to do more than that. you are independent as you said before. you voted for republicans and democrats. but that makes him very unusual in hollywood. overwhelmingly, they support liberal democrats. president obama, certainly. that led to another pledge. >> i pledge to be of service to barack -- obama. >> i pledge to be a servant to our president. >> and all man kind. >> because together we can. >> that was part of, "yes we can" campaign.
7:09 pm
i obviously have a problem with it since my book is titled "no, they can't." it points out that, yes, we can, if we means individuals. but, to president obama and hollywood we seems to mean government and that's a dangerous idea. and, kevin you, just are not allowed to say things like that in hollywood? >> not allowed to case graep wigraep -- not allowed to disagree with hollywood. mind-boggling what comes out of people's mouths. they promote. push, push, push. everything they push for doesn't have an effect on them. i have golfed with some of the big names. i told them you can afford to be a socialist, you are worth $100 million. >> you said that to george clooney? >> a few people. >> george clooney says raise taxes on the rich people. >> it's weird. they drive the prius to the emmys. they have the private airplane. i don't begrudge people that. i wish i had a private airplane. >> lots of celebrities, advocate
7:10 pm
raising taxes on the rich to help the poor. yet, over the year, i have noticed that, well-connected celebrities are quick to use obscure tax dodges and here, two examples. >> bon jovi owns acres of land in new jersey, pays $100 in state property tax. because he raises money bees. he qualifies for a honey bee subsidy. bruce springsteen owns hundred of acres of land, but pays little tax on it because, an organic farmer works his land. his poor neighbors pay more. >> i'm not against any one trying to lower their tax burden. if you are bon jovi an bruce springsteen and publicly support president obama and campaigned for him and held rallies for him but have decried tax cuts for the rich, and have said oh they're robbing these poverty programs and the social contract with america is being destroyed, middle-class is harmed. then you go and rob these very
7:11 pm
anti-poverty programs by calling yourself a farmer. come on. that is the type of hypocrisy that is frustrating to see and, why i wrote the book, and are calling out these people on, on their duplicity. >> one final example, some of the activist lefts are eager to promote capitalists they glamourize the weather underground, killed people and bombed buildings. years later president obama held a fund raiser in his living room. sure enough, robert redford came out with a movie based on the weather underground. in this clip, the terrorists are on the run. >> i don't think he is running away. i think he is trying to clear his name. >> we never betrayed each other any of us over all these years. >> got him. >> what are you willing to take a risk for? >> i saw an interview with him about this movie.
7:12 pm
he is behind it. 100%. promoted it. good, good a thing. that is sad. what kind of statement. promote somebody that, that was blowing up buildings and you know potentially hurting hundred of people, and i don't know, it's, it's screwed up. so screwed up. it's sad to see what is going on. it's strange to me. >> so i give him credit. he invited me to sundance to talk about my books. he seems to have -- he didn't talk to me when i was there. he was there. but, he allows a lot of sliver of the owe dee the open deep ba. >> a deliver, not the full boat. that's for sure. >> it made me wish that someone would confront robert redford about this. >> mr. redford, isn't it deplorable that you are glamorizing the weather underground, a bunch of domestic terrorists? are you going to make a movie about the boston bombers next? >> the boston bombers. redford never responded? >> no, his entourage surrounded
7:13 pm
me and they wouldn't let me get up close. but i even, i think this goes beyond hypocrisy. just a human decency factor. one thing to make a movie about the weather underground terrorists. another thing in the word of variety to romanticize it. and make it heartfelt. we are talking about a bank robbery that resulted in the murder of two police officers and security guard. and now robert redford is going to go make a movie that is essentially one big tribute to this. it is -- it's remarkably deplorable even by hollywood standard. >> jason, thank you. kevin, thank you. if you would look to keep this conversation going -- please go on facebook or twitter and, use that hashtag over here, hollywood, and let people know what you think. i would look to know what you think. coming up -- more celebrity hypocrisy. of back pain... and a choice. take up to 4 advil in a day or 2 aleve for all day relief.

7:18 pm
say the actors. but how do they know? some of these actor activists are clueless. leonardo dicaprio told a report he wants to take a long break from acting to fly around the world doing good for the environment. fly around the world. we heard of harrison ford's seven airplanes don't they get one plane ride spews more car been than 1,000 incandescent lightbulbs? it's as if they live in a separate stupid world? call it "hollywood nation." actually the title of jam hmy gs book. what's going on here? >> hollywood has embraced environmentalism as a sort of religion. they have their high priest, the nobel laureate, the oscar winner, al core. you ha -- al gore. you have to accept what he says with faith, without reason, without logic. >> it does have the ring of a
7:19 pm
religion. and just some blindness to the facts. you mention, al gore. i was surprised to see him build these monster homes while preaching what he was preaching. >> the hypocrisy is monumental. i mean you have this 19,000 square foot mansion in tennessee. a group was able to get a hold of his utilities. they were 20 times that of an average american. he has a mansion in monticeto near oprah's house. >> are any that call themselves environmental activists not hypocrites? do some of them live that life? >> ed begley jr., daryl hannah, they actually live a lifestyle consistent end with what they preach. but boy its that a rarity, john. the vast majority of celebrities take opulence to the highest level. >> the rapper p-diddy made a video, telling people, turn your
7:20 pm
lights out. but he hold a bunch of big houses. and combined his video with the houses. >> i pledge to turn the lights off. i f we want to conserve energy. >> you think he is unaware of the hypocrisy? >> boy, i just think he lives with it. this guy goes on tour and has the carbon footprint of a third world nation. the idea that he is going to turn his lights out that is going to make a difference even if you believe in the theory of man caused global warming. it seems rather ludicrous. >> let's move on to something else. celebrities call evil, the keystone pipeline. some actors made a short film that makes the pipeline seem like the amityville horror movie. a family buy is a new home. >> you are going to love this. awe off it >> soap beautiful, a deal.
7:21 pm
what's the catch? >> the catch, the home is near the keystone pipeline. >> we need to leave. >> it's too late. >> it's going to be okay. it's going to be okay. >> ah! >> what, what galls me, the bad science is pushed in individually that a lot of people see by talented people. >> when you do something in a narrative form, using somebody like wendy mallek, recognizable actre actress, and do it with this clever theme as the you said that looks like a horror movie. it is very, very effective. so the people that are pushing the environmental agenda. >> america's biggest recent environmental, economic success is fracking for natural gas.
7:22 pm
fracking allowed poor people to heat their homes for less. and it reduced america's car been output. yet, many celebrities like, john lennon's wife, and son, trash it. ♪ don't frack my mother ♪ don't frack me >> when celebrities speak, crowd follow. >> they certainly do. they actually powerfully sway not only their followers, but others. when some celebrity like george clooney who recently spouted off on global warming says something, it, it goats global. unlike a noncelebrity who can't get the word out quite as effectively. they are a resource. they're a great power. >> thank you, james hirsin. ed begley jr. told us he learned about conversation from his conservative father who told him it was wriong to waste any resource.
7:23 pm
we'll reach out to any celebrity, about their hip kaypy if they had a comment. coming up. hollywood makes millions selling stuff to us. at the same time. celebrities say they despise profit. >> i say profit its a filthy word. >> greed. just another word for it. our ow! and my customers are really liking your flat rate shipping. fedex one rate. really makes my life easier. maybe a promotion is in order. good news. i got a new title. and a raise? management couldn't make that happen.

>> let's use the word capitalism. john: >> we're talking about capitalism. >> capitalism, the c word, a curse. the opinion of some vocal celebrities. and hollywood does vilify capitalism in movies. capitalist creed, killer viruss. they sacrifice people to aliens. they spread leukemia. capitalists chop down the last rain forest. and capitalists poison people. and yet hollywood thrives
7:28 pm
because of capitalism. they may sneer at profit. they do chase it. try to understand what is in their head let's turn to someone whose is interviewed and mocked celebrities for years, kennedy, once a vj on mtv, what's with the contradiction? >> just as old as dirt. so annoying. movie stars who base their lives on how their movies do at the box office. this cutthroat competition. the film industry. films have to make money. movie stars don't get salaries. they get points. they can make more money. yet some how that is dirty, filthy. if you want to call me the c word, a capitalist, that is perfectly acceptable >> let's play more of michael moore's panel on c span. >> if wall street and the rich thought poverty was bad, they would get rid of it. they need this large, large, half the country, half the country, living in anxiety and
7:29 pm
fear. and the other half over here, are the ones that they'll sell their good to. >> this is truly insane. not only it makes no sense. the left also are gugues we hav have handouts. the poor is seeig their movies, watching their tv shows and buying their crap. they're fine. >> more examples. russell brand's british actor. known for flicks like "forgetting sarah marshal" and get him to the greek. and his own tv show on the fx channel, it was canceled. now developing a new show for fx, owned by fox. boss, what are you thinking? anyway, brand objects to capitalism. a bbc interviewer asked him what would you replace it with? >> all i'm asking, what is the scheme? you talk vaguely revolution. what is it? >> a socialist egalitarian, based on massive redistribution
7:30 pm
of wealth, heavy tax on corporations, and, any companies exploiting the environment, the very concept of profit. >> a little tiny bit of knowledge and it becomes this watered down, socialist, drivel. he is in a sense an attention -- like the paris hilton of film. >> he wants a socialist egalitarian. >> egalitarian. >> equal appeals to people. >> it appeals to people when they're very young and idealistic and passionate and insane. which is what youth is supposed to be. when you grow up and pay taxes people like russell brand no longer make sense. he is not a relevant person in entertainment anymore. he has to say these things to get attention. >> russell brand is a silly actor. what about george lucas, a smart business man, made billions, helped create "star wars" and "indiana jones." >> charlie rose asked him. >> you are among people who know you, a billionaire that is not
7:31 pm
that crazy about capitalism. >> that is true. >> till me. >> i grew up in the 60s. i am an ardent patriot. but i am also an ardent believeren dem kraels, not capitalist democracy. and i do not believe that -- that the rich should be able to buy the government, that's just the way i feel. >> the america you see where the rich have bought the government? >> come on it's been that way for a long time. >> he's got a point there. rich people tend to make political campaign. contributions. >> it's frustrating for a lot of people, a lot of voters. also unions. we live in a system paid for by the highest bidder. here is some one, contributed thousand to democratic cam paints. >> they never get that the reason the rich spend on government, not that the rich are evil or change their behavior. when government is that big. if it has $3 trillion to hand out. people will spend on it to try
7:32 pm
to influence it. >> and he sold his company, he was worth $3.3 billion. sold his company for $4 billion. a pretty tidy profit. shrewd capitalist. >> trashes greed. most money comes from this stuff. these, star wars -- paraphernalia that he sells. and has gotten quite rich on. >> yeah, chewbaca is his slave. he was very shrewd when heap made that deal for the action figures. because, he convinced fox, back in the, '70s, no one is going to buy action figures. boys don't buy dolls. of course that's how he became a multibillionaire. >> one more capitalist doesn't like capitalism. thank you, kennedy. coming up. more celebrities pushing for gun control. >> demand a plan. right now. >> right now. >> you. demand it. >> so many of them. which ones are hypocrites? that's next.
7:33 pm
and ah, so you can see like right here i can just... you know, check my policy here, add a car, ah speak to customer service, check on a know, all with the ah, tap of my geico app. oh, that's so cool. well, i would disagree with you but, ah, that would make me a liar. no dude, you're on the jumbotron! whoa. ah...yeah, pretty much walked into that one. geico anywhere anytime. just a tap away on the geico app. peoi go to angie's listt for all kinds of reasons. to gauge whether or not the projects will be done in a timely fashion and within budget. angie's list members can tell you which provider is the best in town. you'll find reviews on everything from home repair to healthcare. now that we're expecting, i like the fact

7:37 pm
>> if we had if we had just done something yesterday. >> it's time. >> we can do better than this. >> we can do better than this. >> after every horrible mass shooting celebrities push gun control. after the tragedy in newtown, connecticut, lots of celebrities taped an anti-gun commercial the they listed past shootings. >> columbine. >> virginia tech. >> tucson. >> aurora. >> fort hood. >> oak creek. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> newtown. >> how many more? >> how many more? >> how many more celebrities are going to testify in this commercial? makes me want to say. >> enough. >> enough. >> enough. >> enough. >> the actors demand new gun control legislation. >> demand a plan. right now. >> right now. >> you. demand it. >> now i think they're just
7:38 pm
foolish to believe that one more plan would make us safer. but nice that they have a cause they believe in. except many are hypocrites as radio host and former hollywood screenwriter, michael medved, why? >> they're hypocrites because they could do something. i demand a plan. the plan is reduce the levels of gun violence in movies. >> in pg movies the levels of gun violence just in, since, the year 2000, have gone up 300%. if you want to do something, do something about that. an industry, so many people who are testifying are involved in lavishly violent entertainments like the big new movie "the hunger games," right. the hunger games i thought was bow and arrows. >> it's bows, bows, arrows and everything else. the point is that the general levels of violence and the specific levels of gun violence
7:39 pm
have never been higher in hollywood. and yet these self-righteous hypocrites are testifying, demanding a plan from the government. you can do a plan in your own life. if you don't want to have guns, no one is forcing you to have guns. but they are concerned, and in typical left wing fashion, with what other people do. and take no responsibility for what they do themselves. >> and for the record, there is no evidence to my knowledge that the violence in films lead to violence in real life. there has been more violence in films and video games and -- and violence in real life, fortunately, has been dropping. >> very, very true. people contest the idea that there is an actual relationship between violence on screen and violence in real life. but there is more evidence of that association than there is an association with widespread gun ownership, and violence in real life. >> so after the celebrities anti-gun psa aired. some one reedited the
7:40 pm
commercial, adding clips of what most actors have done in their films. >> newtown. [ gunfire ] >> home more classrooms? [ gunfire ] >> how many more movie theaters? >> here we go. [ gunfire ] for. >> here's one more video that seems hypocritical to me, jim carrey calls people who make guns the devil's profiteers. ♪ the ones who sell the guns the vultures and coyotes ♪ ♪ only the devils true devotees could profiteer from pain and fear ♪ >> on twitter he said "this video as it but you heartless, mother [ bleep ] unwilling to bend for the safety of our kids." >> which is, unbelievable. and you see, this, this goes to
7:41 pm
it seems to me, the biggest difference between the libertarian right and the crazy left. is for those of us on the right, look, i, i do care about a bunch of issues. i care about the environment. so, i plant trees. i pick up litter. right? but they care about what other people do. what, what is necessary as a message seems to me for americans regarding gun violence and everything else is care about yourself. make the difference that you can make, rather than trying to compel other people to do what you want them to do. that desire to control other people is at the very, very heart of the statist and collectivist project. i hate it. >> me too. thank you, michael medved. >> thank you, john. >> next, let's play real or fake. we'll fest yotest your knowledg our game show. for example, this actor, promotes a compostable tennis
7:42 pm
shoe with seed in its tongue. real or fake 1234

7:44 pm
7:45 pm
>> now time to play real or
7:46 pm
fake? some times celebrity do's things that are so bizarre that if you didn't see it or hear it you wouldn't believe it was real. like harrison ford, waxing his chest. to save the rain forest. so now i want to test you, can you separate real celebrity behavior from stuff i made up. play the real or fake game along with tonight's libertarian panel. reason magazine's matt welch, special correspondent, kennedy, and camille foster with free think media. so, first question -- actor charlie sheen asked president obama to investigate whether 9/11 was instigated by george w. bush. real or fake? >> real. >> yes here, did it. made a six-minute video. he said osama bin laden might have been working with the cia. >> next, bill gates, offered $100,000 to the person who could invent a more pleasurable
7:47 pm
condom? >> three fakes. >> no, he did. it was called it the next generation condom challenge to improve up take and regular use. >> uptake. a great euphemism. >> bill gates and sex in the same sentence. >> next one. actress evangeline lily, to raise money auctions off sexy underwear? >> no doubt about that. >> yes we, have a picture of that. this didn't surprise you? >> it is too random not to be real. if it said whoopi goldberg. >> miley cyrus played strip poker to raise money -- >> wait for the question. >> to raise money for a children's music charity? >> kennedy got that one right. that's one that we made up here. >> come on now. >> sounded so real didn't it? since president obama's
7:48 pm
limousine only gets 8 miles per gallon. ed begley jr. start aid petition to get the president to trade in his limo for an electric power version. awe aw >> great idea. >> you were all wrong. this one i made up too. >> mary tyler moore, tried to pay a restaurant $1,000 to free one of its lobsters? >> okay. yes, this really happened. >> gladstone's. melbourne. >> your neck of the woods. a lobster named spike at a malibu restaurant. >> delicious by the way. >> actor adrian grenier has a website promoting environmentally friendly compostable tennis shoes, real or fake? >> really, you think that's real? you are right. the sneakers have seeds embedded in their tongues so when they wear out, just, bury them and
7:49 pm
watch the flowers bloom. what's wrong with that? >> nothing. great private idea. >> everyone involved with "entourage" is noted for their intellects. >> alyssa milano made a fake sex tape to raise awareness of the conflict in syria. real or fake? >> it is absolutely true. and i think we can play some of it here. >> ha-ha. >> who cares. >> our nation is on the bring of yet another conflict in the middle east. >> america is the greatest country. >> we are all thinking more about syria because of that. >> that's what it is. >> i certainly am. >> time to name the winner. told in my ear, we have accountants in the secret room. a tie, kennedy, camille, you
7:50 pm
won. matt, you lose. >> one last question. real or fake, the three of you are about to have your own tell vision show? >> whoo. >> on fox, business here. >> still real. t going to be 60 minutes of greatness. >> this is great news. i'm so glad you're doing this show. we need more talk shows about liberty. it took me 20 years to understand its importance. you're younger than i. how did you understand so quickly? matt you're the editor of magazine. >> it started, i lived in central europe for most of the 1990s and got to see what it's like to exist in the shadow of central planning and it's awful and see people get liberated from that and create something new is a sering experience. >> i was taught the importance of talking dirty. >> i have reason to thank as well. i have a really great college
